CD Packaging Details

Part Description
CD It looks like a home-burned CD-R of the Videlectrix Media brand (which parodies the appearance of many CD-Rs), with a capacity of "70 jg". The title looks like it was hand-written with a permanent marker. On the underside of the CD, the word "Homestar" is laser-etched into the outer part of the middle.
Cover The front of the CD jacket has a blue ballpoint pen illustration of Strong Bad with blaring amps for feet, lightning bolts for arms, and two electric guitars sticking out of his head like gigantic horns.
Inside Cover Trogdor is burninating a modern-day city and fending off a jet, helicopter, tank, and some infantrymen. A defeated pig-man, possibly the Kerrek, is also shown. There is also a pouch-like slit to hold the booklet and sticker.
Sticker A rectangular sticker with the Limozeen logo in white on a black background.
Booklet The front has a color version of the illustration from the jacket. The next two pages feature three promotional posters:

On page four, there is a Taranchula album cover, featuring a sinister-looking rocker-type flexing his biceps, with a black background and glowing white skin. The Limozeen album cover for "Zeenin' Into the Night" is seen on page five, and features the members of Limozeen in silhouette, standing atop a limousine at sunset and assuming rocker poses.

The last two pages contain the drawings behind the credits and acknowledgments appear to be "prototype" drawings of some of the characters, including Teen Girl Squad and Eh! Steve!. A fat Strong Sad, a The S is for Sucks prototype and a Stinkoman without any blue hair can also be seen. A character that looks a bit like Homeschool Winner can be seen on the far right side. There are also a few pictures from Exaggerations.

The back of the booklet contains a photo of Dangeresque-like sunglasses under a spotlight.

Under the CD Illustration of Dangeresque's "cool glasses".
